|Mr. PlayStation has confirmed the PlayStation 5|
Isn't Sony just a terribly unoriginal company? How many consoles have they released now that are just called the "PlayStation"??
- PlayStation 2
- PlayStation 3
- PlayStation Portable
- PlayStation Vita
- PlayStation TV (yes this is a real system)
- PlayStation 4
- PlayStation Classic
And now they're making the 9th "PlayStation." And they still have the audacity to call it the PlayStation 5.
What the heck, Sony!?
Note: to make the "PlayStation TV" more confusing, there was a system called the PSX which acted as a PS2 and video recorder, thus being more of a TV than the PlayStation TV. The PSX is not to be included, as the official name of the console is "PSX" and not "PlayStation X" making this whole situation stupidly confusing. If you have any complaints, please send them to Sony Japan Ltd.
Today (6/11/2020), Sony held a conference which gave us some of the deets about their upcoming console. As we all know, this could be the future of gaming.
The console looks #swag, and you cannot deny that. The controller looks pretty #epic. The controller looks like it took the best aspects of the PS4 controller whilst fixing some of the stinky aspects of it. Alongside their regular console, Sony is also releasing a purely digital version of the console with no disc, but I'm unsure as to how useful that would be. If the PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 games, it would seem like a waste to get rid of the disc slot. Chances are, the digital console either has more storage or a lower price. If not, then there's close to no reason to purchase it.

What about the games? As it turns out, there were a lot of cool games. The new Ratchet and Clank looks really fun. I like the style as usual. Sackboy looks like it would be great to play with friends, but still looks cool for singleplayer. I'm really hoping the new Spiderman game really makes you feel like Spiderman. Godfall (which looked like a mobile game) looks like it'll be a lot of fun. Stray has a funny little cat creature. Kena has an Asian girl with a bow as well as some little black creatures. Demon's Souls is definitely gonna be good. Some of the others were kinda cool, but it is certain that there will be some freaky fresh games for the console.
However, you get games like Goodbye Volcano High (a furry visual novel) and Jett, which looks like an interactive screensaver. A lot of other games were pretty boring and pointless in my opinion.
In the end, I feel as though the PS5 looks really promising, but I feel like it's gonna come down to two things really. The price and the storage. Until more information is released on the matter, I am cautiously optimistic about this system.
